Food Safety

You may already know that your burgers should be cooked to a higher tempurature than a steak or roast, but did you know that 160 is the optimal temperature for safe and savory ground beef?

Use an instant-read thermometer to verify cooking temperature.

A 3-oz serving of beef is about 170 calories on average, yet an excellent source of six nutrients (protein, zinc, selenium, niacin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12), and is a good source of four nutrients (phosphorous, iron, riboflavin and choline). A substantial body of evidence shows the nutrients in beef can help satisfy you and maintain a healthy weight, build muscles and fuel a healthy lifestyle.
